RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to browse your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the info is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change depending on what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory you will get with every single virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and shall be available consistently even when you do not use it all for a long length of time. Every VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you need an effective web hosting solution for your sites and applications and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide you with, you'll have a great deal of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks meticulously alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to assemble any web server, so in case you purchase one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality web server which will guarantee outstanding functionality for your Internet sites. Even when you do not use the entire capacity of the hosting server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server only.
